Testimonials

Matt + Athena-248

It was our great fortune to have Alyssa document our wedding day this past August. Alyssa is a lovely, sweet, and easy-going person to work with and she provided a calming and comforting presence for an occasion when there are typically a lot of nerves and emotions. Her style is timeless; she captured genuine, candid moments, both tender and funny, without ever being intrusive or making us feel conscious that we were being photographed. Even for our portrait session, which for some couples can seem too contrived or staged, Alyssa made us feel very relaxed and the wedding portraits that she shot are really natural and sweet. Both my husband and I sincerely love all of the photographs that she took. Every image is beautiful and moving. She is as talented as she is kind and we couldn’t be happier or more grateful that we chose her as one of our wedding photographers. Her photos are magical and bring all of our happy memories back to life. – Athena + Matt

Julia + Dale Wedding Standards-369

Alyssa is simply amazing! She shot our San Francisco engagement session as well as our Lake Tahoe wedding. Alyssa made us feel comfortable; she let us be us and shot around us! Her work is absolutely stunning. She has an amazing eye for locations and moments. Our families adored her at the wedding. Alyssa was sweet and kind to everyone involved in the big day, but professional enough to control the large group photos (our families are not an easy bunch either!) We received more compliments about her than I can even remember. Our biggest concern when considering our wedding photographer was ending up with typically posed or forced shots. Thanks to Alyssa, our pictures feel so natural and happy. She captured the mood and moments of the day! Even our family and group photos have a relaxed (and not cheesy!) feel. Wedding planning was stressful due to my other vendors, but Alyssa was my saving grace, my zero-stress vendor! Hire her – it will be your easiest and best decision you make while planning your wedding! – Julia + Dale

Ariel + Christoph Piedmont-53

Working with Alyssa was a dream. We were at first skeptical about even having [wedding] photographs at all, but friends convinced us that we would want to have professional images to remember the day. What we got was so far beyond professional – the work that Alyssa did for us was beautiful, personal and completely captured the spirit and love of being surrounded by our family and friends. She was responsive and flexible – everything you could want in a vendor-partner. I am so thankful that we had Alyssa as a part of our ceremony, and feel so lucky that we’ll have the photographs forever! – Ariel + Christoph

As someone who tends to be camera shy, my experience with Alyssa was relaxed, comfortable and actually fun. Her professionalism behind the camera is marked by a natural ability to set her subject (in this case, me) at ease. Needless to say her photographs speak for themselves– not only are they technically impeccable, but they capture the essence of people and places in a way that only the most attuned and artful photographic eye can. – Georgina

Tiffany Lan-30

The photos Alyssa took for us were outstanding. She captured her subjects in stunning shots, both posed and candid. Her close-ups were exceptional: sometimes serious, sometimes playful, always conveying an essential quality of her subject. She was unobtrusive, and delightful to work with. We can recommend her without hesitation. -Robyn and Chuck

Jack + Noa-169

Alyssa is an AMAZING photographer!!! And such a sweet and kind person on top of that. My fiance and I had an impromptu photo session that was so fun and natural that we knew immediately we wanted Alyssa to photograph our wedding. I feel so at ease knowing that Alyssa will be taking pictures on our wedding day, and thrilled to be getting the kind of high quality photographs she produces. – Noa

Chetna-56

Alyssa is an amazing photographer–she has the ability to bring out the true spirit of the child. She has an ability to coax them to show their true essence, no matter how distracted or grumpy they are. If they don’t want to be there, she makes them forget they are. This is no easy feat, and her results speak for themselves. -Wendy

Dawn Porter-41

Alyssa is an incredibly talented photographer who creates beautiful pictures! She is extremely sweet, fun, relaxed, and professional, and has an ability to capture amazing, candid moments. My husband and I were so pleased with the results of our photo session with her – she effortlessly shot a great combination of both candid and posed photos. Her pictures are now among our very favorite photos ever taken of us. They are natural, stunning, and captured our personalities in a unique way. We would highly recommend her for anyone in need of a photographer and we look forward to working with her again in the future! – LT
